Quid Pro Quo

Quid Pro Quo Amongst Quarks it is very unusual to have twins, especially as Quarks usually come in threes. But Quid and Quo were always seen together. In every event they were evenly matched, though they were not identical. In fact they were almost mirror images of each other, complementary companions it could be said. […]

Who do you believe?

Who do you believe? Who has the last word? What is the ultimate authority? Who do you believe? In a conversation with a good friend we explored the difficulty of granting a request when there were grounds for doubting the sincerity of the appeal. The request was supported by two reliable colleagues, but to do […]

Qubit

Qubit Events at the extreme edge of experimentation are attracting the attention of academics like the Quark conventionally called Qubit. Quantum scientists have been searching for ways to increase the power and speed of computing. Imaginative intuition is the skill scientists need nowadays, especially so since Einstein. Qubit is one of the most original thinkers […]

Perfection on the Plot

Perfection on the Plot Looking after an allotment may be likened to the search for perfection, which is never attained. Even my neighbour whose plot is usually immaculate has been struggling recently to keep up with the invasion of weeds. I have been playing ‘catch-up’ and have started to make progress. Using weed-control fabric and […]

QED

QED It is proverbially profoundly problematic to prove anything in Quantum Physics. The uncertainty principle dominates the universe. And yet quantum computers are currently being constructed and communities wonder what a Quantum World Wide Web would look like. Into this complex cosmic conundrum steps QED, one of the most intelligent Quarks ever to emerge from […]

The service was held at Wigmore Methodist/United Reformed Church. Having presided at such services many times in the past, this time […]

Quark

Quark “Be natural and be yourself.” That was the way Quark wanted to be. But in the cauldron of cosmic particles the pressure to be beautiful and popular is intense. Quark existed as the epitome of Quarks, having emerged from the embrace of a warming world and sifted by solar winds. The result was a […]

Busyness or Being?

Busyness or Being? Life is busier. I have one more choir rehearsal on Thursday before our concert with the Luton Concert Orchestra on Saturday. We are singing from our own repertoire plus items with the orchestra including a medley from the Sound of Music, and a kind of “Last night of the Proms” selection, including […]

Quack

Quack It takes enough effort to try to fathom the facts about Quarks, without one of them deliberately deceiving the scientists searching for the secrets of the subatomic cosmos. But Quack, a down, bottom spinning Quark, chose to be a charlatan, a crafty, conniving, cheat! There is universal uncertainty in the quantum world of Quarks, […]
